We kicked off our wedding season last Saturday at a private ranch in Petaluma CA. Jenny and I both had a feeling that this was going to be a fun wedding and we were right. As we began unpacking our surplus of supplies a woman with one of the brightest smiles ever entered the room. I glanced up quickly and then did a double take. I knew that face, those eyes, that smile but my mind could not understand how one of our favorite bridesmaids from the previous year, Nisa, was once again in Petaluma. Nisa was just as excited to see us, which made for quite the reunion. It turns out that she attended college with both Annie (2016 EB Bride) and Kelsey (2017 EB Bride). She doesn’t live in the area but she traveled here for both weddings. Nisa has good energy, is fun and cares about her brides. I remember leaving Annie’s wedding last year and either Jenny or I saying, “Every wedding needs a girl like that as a bridesmaid. We need a Nisa at every wedding!” Well we may not have her at every wedding, but we were lucky enough to once again enjoy working with her at Kelsey’s wedding. Nisa chose completely opposite looks for each wedding, which was an added bonus. At Annie’s wedding I did a smokey makeup using a warm burgundy palette, Jenny styled her long thick hair into an updo and she wore a short blue dress. For Kelsey’s wedding Nisa chose to stay with a dramatic makeup but we used a cool palette of purples, Jenny styled her hair down with part pulled back in a top knot and her dress was a long flowing Show Me Your Mumu dress in Silver Sage. Nisa looked gorgeous in both looks and it is a fun comparison of our work. Nisa we cannot wait to style you for your next event!
We will be doing a full blog on Kelsey’s wedding as well in the near future.
